gitk shows local uncommit changes after touch file + reload




Hi,

Not sure if this has already been reported, but I observe this odd
behaviour in gitk from master:

git status
gitk # everything looks good
touch <file-under-version-control>
gitk # gitk shows "local uncomitted changes" on the file I touched
git status
gitk # gitk is back to normal again, showing no local uncommitted changes

The issue has been discussed on stackoverflow here:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/49990403/after-tar-untar-of-git-repo-gitk-shows-local-uncommitted-changes-not-checked

Any chance gitk could be changed to so that it doesn't display the
"local uncommitted changes" blob in this case ?
